    Artorias of the Abyss successfully revitalizes your initial wonder through Dark Souls' world, and for that it's worth every Microsoft Point.

    Artorias is for hardcore players only, but anyone still playing Dark Souls at this point easily meets that requirement. It's a fantastic addition to an already great game, and a no-brainer purchase for anyone still under Dark Souls' spell.

    If you're a Dark Souls fan, you need to buy this right away. If you're a casual fan who sounds like they're frustrated by the mere premise of accessing this content, you should probably back away now.

    The definitive version of one of the best video games of the last 10 years, as well as a perfect example of downloadable content done right.

    It's a tightly wound adventure well worth setting aside time for, backed up by a multiplayer angle that will have greater staying power.

    Artorias of the Abyss is finally available as a DLC for the console versions of Dark Souls. If you've loved the main game, you'll enjoy this new adventure and, above all, you'll be hella happy to try the new PVP arenas. What are you waiting for? Buy this DLC and Prepare to Die!

    Looking at the seven DLC the Souls series has released in retrospect, Artorias of The Abyss is easily one of the best of Fromsoft's work. WithLooking at the seven DLC the Souls series has released in retrospect, Artorias of The Abyss is easily one of the best of Fromsoft's work. With Artorias, Kalameet and Manus proving to be great boss fights (along with a decent first boss of the Sanctuary Guardian), the enemies being new additions that are creepy and interesting and new things to be seen, it really shows just how DLC and expansions are done right. Sure the DLC will only take a few hours to complete, but I prefer games that manage to make powerful moments in shorter games. Bigger isn't always better and adding too much to the structure can make it feel bloated. This of course is far from this DLC and it deserves much praise for what it accomplishes. In the current standing of the DLCs, Old Hunters is first with gold with Artorias is very close with silver and Ringed City is significantly more distant with bronze. Expand

Bosses were very hard, unfortunately I found it very unbalanced. To be able to beat the bosses you have to be at a pretty high level. This meant that the battles between the regular enemies were very easy. It was way too short. Expand

    This is really good DLC but It was horrible marketing. The content was added in a patch, so you could still fight players who had all the DLCThis is really good DLC but It was horrible marketing. The content was added in a patch, so you could still fight players who had all the DLC items. I found that to be very unfair considering the DLC content gave a clear advantage over the other non paying players also the content was there you just need to unlock it through payment which I really don't like.
